Synopsis

Oxford First French Words by Neil Morris

Oxford First French Words gives your child a head start in learning another language. It takes the reader on a picture-book journey through a day, cleverly interwoven are lots of familiar settings and cute little dinosaurs. There is a bird's eye view of first thing in the morning at home, the journey to school and inside the classroom, a birthday party and even a trip to the seaside. Over 400 French words and their English translations are given in illustrated colour bands on the side of each page. There is also expertly-levelled supplementary material at the back - a picture/word matching game, counting the ladybirds up to twenty, shapes both flat and three-dimensional, opposites, the weather, time, plus a comprehensive index. These David Melling (The Kiss that Missed, Fidget and Quilly) illustrations make this an adorable first bilingual word book.

About the Author

Neil Morris

Neil Morris worked in publishing for more than ten years before becoming a writer. After studying German at Swansea University, he got his first job as a lexicographer, helping to compile a German-English dictionary. Neil lived in Munich for a few years, translating, proofreading and learning how to make and edit films as well as books. Back in London he worked as an editor for an educational publisher, and this was when he first got hooked on creating exciting books for children.

Neil's publishing career took him on a zigzag course through preschool activity packs, board games and educational toys, eventually leading him back to books. Working freelance, he now works almost exclusively on information books. Neil writes for all age groups and tackles many different subjects, including history, geography and biography. His work has also included compiling young children's word books and junior dictionaries, and he has contributed to large reference works, such as Encarta Children's Encyclopaedia.
